Return To Void debut released (2017). Our self-titled album available in digital format here and there. 


Traditional heavy and hard rock with "progy spices" playing band was established in Karhula, Finland in 2015. Initially started as a trio (Markku Pihlaja -voc, Saku Hakuli -gtr, Pasi Hakuli -bass), played acoustic versions of Bruce Dickinson solo material under the name of Dick & son´s. After couple of gigs the band wanted to try with full band so Kalle Kukkonen was summoned to take the drumming duties. Tha magic was immediately there like in good old days of Kaihoro. A band, where they all used played in the past.   

In the afterglow of successful gig, the idea of a band that would play new an orginal music was born. The line-up was ready after synth-wizard Antti Huopainen was lured in.

The winter 2015-2016 was productive time of debut album. Full album of songs was composed and rehearsed with ease. Off to the Studio Korkeakoski. There they recorded all drums with help of Studio Korkeakoski main man Teemu Aalto. Rest was done at the singers Railroad Records headquarters.

At late summer 2017 band started recording their second album "Memory Shift: The Day After". Technically pretty much same protocol as a debut album was done. The new album is finished now and it has more "proggy and harder" outfit than the debut. Details about release coming soon. 

List of another projects, past and present, includes varied outings like Kaihoro, Total Devastation, Manitou, Kreyskull, Gran Torino, Demonic death judge...
